    Default PS4 | Horizon: Zero Dawn





    Developer: Guerrilla Games

    Release Date: Wed, 01 March 2017

    I'll be honest, I wasn't particularly hyped for this, given it was by Guerrilla; their games tend to be great from a technical and art direction point of view, but they always seem to struggle with actual gameplay. The reviews for Horizon are coming in though, and they're all incredibly positive, with most calling it Guerrilla's best game to date.

    It looks great but it doesn't really hook me. Still the reviews are really positive about the narrative and I like a good narrative.

    Really nice to see a female lead too. and more profoundly, some Ginger representation.
    As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk, the law runneth forward and back. For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.

    Hell yeh, bring on march 1st. Still a little skeptical on story, mainly because I got hooked on robo dino hunting and I don't want to hype out the story. Gameplay does look very solid. Best bit so far is Digital Foundry's impressions, both standard and Pro ps4's have a very stable framerate despite how gorgeous it looks (execpt for one area which is almost certainly bugged/unfinished)

    Also, lip-syncing still seems 50-50 between horrible and decent, even in the official trailers. Not a huge issue, but the stark contrast between the good scenes and the bad ones is a bit odd.

    I'm definitely getting this game. It looks insanely pretty and i've always liked that Tomb Raider / Far Cry style - bow n arrow open world type game. Robot dinosaurs too, i feel like my 12 year old self made this game!!

    As long as the movement is fluid it'll be good, Killzone felt too clunky for my liking.

    I have yet to see those Killzone graphics in person heh.

    This is looking technically amazing, seems it holds performance well and supposedly there with be another Pro performance boost day one. Hopefully it avoids Open world fatigue.

    This and mass effect have been my first games ive actually pre-ordered in quite some time.

    Im looking forward to this for all the reasons already mentioned, female lead, robo dinosaurs, very tomb raider/turok looking. I hope the story lives up to the hype being generated.

    That doesn't say the words 'Big W' anywhere.

    Although there's a BIG W around the corner from my EB Games, so if I'm desperate to save $10 I might go look for a catalog to price match

    You're right, it must be the other big Australian retailer that's selling Horizon for $69 from 1/3 - 8/3

    I'd imagine that the catalog will probably appear online tomorrow.

    I'm just arguing from an EB Games perspective, that is 100% what they'll say when they see that pic...I would.

    In saying that I dont usually try and force the price match issue on new releases because I dont get how eb manages to compete with the bigger chains as it is.

    Got this this afternoon and have put a few hours into this tonight. Im not usually a fan of 3rd person platformers/adventure games (witcher 3 and batman the exceptions for differing reasons) but so far im thoroughly enjoying this game. The environment looks great and the combat feels fluid and although im not far into the story, so far its piqued my interest enough to be looking forward to another few hours tomorrow night.

    I figured I'd start with normal just to get used to it. Will definitely be doing a very-hard minimum HUD playthough. The balance with the mahine combat is great, if you get it right you feel awesome but if you fuck up you get wrecked in a heartbeat.

    Also, the 'old world' audio logs set the atmosphere up great, two specifically that come to mind in the first ruin where Aloy picks up the focus.

    Yeah the combat system is good, usually in the beginning areas on other games they seem pretty lenient with damage etc

    But get it wrong and the herd gets alerted it's all over, I've been trying to get my melee and dodging down pat... only up to the first area with adult Aloy and still exploring.

    I had a laugh with the name Aloy, a machine world and her name plays to some reference of Alloy lol

    Pre or post proving? I'm not expecting too much change to the narative based on dialogue choices but there's definitely some reactions to dialogue choices I've been noticing allready
